Lest we forget 
The glad good times we've had. 
The friends we've met 
And learned to love, 
The Rocks, wistaria-clad, 
The dear old Grove. 
And all the treasured mem'ries of our schoolgirl days- 
When in the distant future we shall sadly gaze 
Back down the aisles of time, 

11 then this book, 
Bv picture or by rhyme, 

Call forth a look 
Of loving memory or sweet regret 
For days gone by, it will 
Its task fulfill — 
Lest we forget !

Alma Mater 

Tune: "Believe Me if All Those Endearing Young Chur 

St. Mary's wherever thy daughters may be 

They love thy high praises to sing, 
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories cling; 
They may wander afar, out of reach of th> name. 

Afar, out of sight of thy grove. 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved St. Mary's, how great is our delil! 

Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget, 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love that they feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fast rolling years it will grow and endure; 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future unite all the good id thy pasl 

With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward tli\ cmirse! Tn the last 

Be thou steadlast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings -o'er woodland and hill— 

Of earnestness, wisdom, and love. 

H. E. Hoogson. 1905. 

REV. ALBERT SUEDES, D.D., 1810-1877 

Founder (1842) and First Rector (1842-1877) of St. Mary's School 

At the time of the death of Dr. Smedes a tribute was paid to his memory by the Bishop in these 
words: "I take this occasion to express publicly, as my judgment, that Dr. Smedes accomplished 
more for the advancement of the Church in this Diocese, and for the promotion of the best interests 
of society within its limits, than any other man who ever lived in it. Under his care, and very much 
as the result of his intelligence, his firmness, and his tender affection fur them, there went out from 
St. Mary"s School, Kaleigh, every year a number of young girls who, in culture, in refinement, and 
still more in elevation of moral and religious character, would compare favorably witli the pupils of 
any other institution in this country. He knew not only how to teach, but how to govern, and to 
make himself honored as well as loved, and to constrain his pupils to feel that the years spent under 
his care were at the same time the happiest and most useful of their lives. He has gone to his 
reward, but his work remains, and will remain from generation to generation." — Haywood's "Bishops 
of North Carolina," page 193. 

Brief Sketch of Mrs. Iredell 

Mrs. Mary Iredell, the daugh- 
ter of Dr. Chas. E. Johnson of 
Raleigh and Emily Skinner of 
Edenton, was born in 1838, four 
years before St. Mary's was 
opened, and was a pupil of St. 
Mary's from 1847 to 1855. In 
1859 she married Mr. Campbell 
Iredell and made her home in 
Raleigh. In 1863 Capt. Iredell 
fell at Gettysburg, and as their 
only child, a boy of eighteen 
months, had died some time be- 
fore, Mrs. Iredell found herself at 
twenty-five "with heart stunned, 
the light of life gone out, and a 
waste of years before her." It 
was then that at the suggestion of 
Rev. Dr. Aldert Smedes she re- 
turned to St. Mary's as a member 
of the Faculty to begin life anew. 
She was the much-valued assistant 
of the Drs. Smedes from 1863 to 
1889, in which year Dr. Bennett 
Smedes made her Lady Principal. 
From this position she had to re- 
sign the following January on ac- 
count of the death of her sister, 
whose family of young children 
she took charge of at Asheville. 
Her immediate connection with 
St. Mary's was renewed in 1896. when she returned to Raleigh to make her home with 
her brother, Colonel Johnson. 

When the School passed into the hands of the Church. Bishop Cheshire asked 
Mrs. Iredell to be agent and representative of St. Mary's to solicit funds ami patronage, 
and she did valuable work in this respect during several trying years. As President 
of the Alumna; Association, Mrs. Iredell took a leading part in the Alumna" work of 
founding the Smedes Scholarship in honor of the Drs. Smedes and in the enlarging 
of the Chapel, which was accomplished in 1901. 

She spent the last years of her life quietly at the home of her brother, but as 
long as she was physically able to do so she was sure to lend the encouragement of 
her presence to any event of importance at St. Mary's, and especially at the opening 
of the session and at Commencement, so that she continued well known to St. Mary's 
girls year by year. For the past two years she has been largely confined to the house.

The Re 

Donor of the Niles Medal 
186— -1919 

Dr. Niles, when Rector of 
Trinity Church, Columbia, S. C, 
preached the annual Commence- 
ment Sermon at the Commence- 
ment in May, 1905, and the fol- 
lowing year instituted the Niles 
Medal, which has been awarded 
at each Commencement since for 
the Highest Average in studies. 
Some years ago Dr. Niles became 
Rector of the Church of the Ascen- 
sion in Atlantic City, and was 
rector there until his death, Janu- 
ary 22. 1919. His last visit to St. 
Mary's was in May, 1915, when he 
was the Commencement speaker.

To Miss Katie 

To long for truth, to try to realize 
The highest that we see — that is the noblest 
Living; and that, dear friend, in all these years 
Your high sincerity, your love of love, 
Your hatred of deceit and scorn of all pretense 
Have helped us to desire. 

Thinking of you, 
We know that love and truth are real ; 
That God and good are the eternal verities ! 
Noisy ambition, hard-won fame, the wish 
For recognition even of worthy work. 
Beside these vital truths fade into nothingness. 
To do good, and to distribute of your love 
And of your strength to them that need — that 
Has been your life. And with such service 

God is pleased. 

Emilie W. McVea, 1900 

"Constant as the Northern Star, 
Of whose true, fix'd, and resting quality 
There is no fellow in the firmament" 

Miss Kate McKlMMON, known affection- 
ately as "Miss Katie" to all St. Mary's girls, 
is this year in her fifty-second year of devoted 
service to the School. 

Entering as a little girl in 1867, from pupil 
she became teacher, and has continued her 
teaching without interruption since, being now 
in charge of the Primary School. 

As "Dormitory Mother" she won the hearts 
of her girls for many years, and her work lor 
and in the Chapel has been a very special 
part of her. 

An unreconstructed Southerner but loyal 
American, whole-hearted in her devotion to 
School and to Church, St. Mary's would 
hardly seem St. Mary's without "Miss Katie." 

Miss McVea paid tribute to her in the poem 
published above on her fiftieth birthday.

Fifth Rector of St. Mary's. 1907 

In whose Rectorship the II i'ngs and Clement Hall hare heen built and the 
School has reached the largest enrollment in its seventy-six years 

The "Thirteen Originals" 

Aline Hughes. '18, blended the thought of the "Original Thirteen" of the "Stage Coaeh Days" 
and of the "Granddaughters" in her prize verses in the metre of Alfred Noyes" "Forty Singing Sea- 
men/' which were read at the 7Sth Anniversary Celebration, May 12, 1917. 

The following verses are an extract only: 

Away from home and mother off to boarding school we rolled. 

Thirteen wondering school girls in the big stage coach. 
The coach got there at twilight, and through the Grove we bowled. 
Wondering if the teachers had noted our approach. 
But the door was open wide. 
Sending golden light outside. 
And we thought thev must have noted our approach; 
Must have long been warned of us by rumblings Irom the coach. 

We learned to love those dear people and East Rock Chapel small; 

We'll carry all their pictures in our minds where'er we go. 
But when we were just school girls, without a great life call. 
How could we then prophesy how our dear school would grow? 
We were school girls just like others; 
We were not then your grandmothers; 
We were thirteen wondering school girls, so how could we then know? 
We were the thirteen first St. Mary's girls. Of course we couldn't know. 

To you. the girls of '19, we originals would say, 

Our blessings now are with you, as you each one ought to know. 
As we have loved St. Mary's, may you ever love it, too. 
And carry on her teachings as on your way you go. 
If we had known of you 
We might have been more true, 
But we were only school girls, so of course we did not know; 
The first thirteen St. Mary's girls, of course we could not know. 

The original of the "Stage Coach Picture," so often used in The Muse to contrast the old days 
with later ones, was a drawing by Mrs. Guslave Blessner, Mr. Blessner, Musical Director at 
St. Mary's in the '40s, had it lithographed tor use on the cover of some waltzes which he composed 
and had published in 1845. On the title page of the music, in addition to the Stage Coach picture, 
was printed: "The Flowers of the South: A Collection of Characteristic Waltzes. Composed fur the 
Piano, and Dedicated to the Young Ladies of St. Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C, by Gustave Blessner."

mencement. It has done effective work in aiding the progress of the School. 

The Alumna? Chapters meet in their several towns and cities on November 1st, All Saints, which 
is celebrated as Founders' Day, and on May 12th, the date of the first opening of St. Mary's, which 
is observed as Alumna 1 Day.

The Class Foe: 

C/wss Poem 

A song escapes our lips 
By words led unexpressed; 
A song whose tone is mixed 
Alike with joy, distress; 
A song whose author is the heart 
Of those who would confess 
Thou art the truest friend 
Thai e'er a soul possessed — 
St. Mary's! 

A song escapes our lips — 
The parting day is here — 
A song whose very tone 
Expectancy doth bear, 
A song whose soul goes piercing 
Through the future with a prayer 
And leads us onward from thee. 
Our truest friend and dear — 
St. Mary's!

Good-bye, School, We're Through 

(A Song of Graduation Day) 
(After "Good-bye, Girls' 7 from "Chin Chin") 

We're the happiest girls in all the realm of schooldom, 

We feel as though we'd triumphed over fate. 
We've reached a goal we've ever sought, 
A day of which we've ever thought, 

That wondrous day on which we graduate. 
Of course we've not had only sun and flowers. 

But storms and clouds have braced us in the line. 
Like every other girl we've wasted hours, 

But now all's done — the future looks benign. 
And yet we say with heartfelt sigh 
For the happy days of the years gone by: 

Good-bye, School, were through. 

Dear School, where we have met. 
We say good-bye to you 

With very real regret. 
Our day of jubilation 
Is full of fascination, 

But we'll e'er to you be true; 
Good-bye, School, 

Good-bye, School, we're through. 

E. C. 1916 

Who's Who in the Class of 1919 

Bertha Sears Albertson 

To merely look at Bertie, you might imagine she was a perfect 
angel — as meek as they are made. But you wouldn't stick to that 
opinion long, if only once you could see her on one of her "high 
horses" — which, strange as it may seem, always come when every- 
hody else is busiest studying. She is a regular tease and she has 
a will of her own. If once her mind is set upon doing something, 
she can't be budged! 


Helen VanWyck Buttle 

Helen is our athletic star. But she is something else, too. 
She's sentimental! Besides being able to beat everybody in run- 
ning and jumping, she also stars in managing to escape the watch- 
ful eyes of the West Wing teachers, as she rushes toward Senior 
Hall at the last flash. She's good at books, too, and can preside 
over the E.A.P. meetings with befitting dignity. 

Marie Elizabeth Bowne 

"Rush on — Keep moving" applies equally well to Bonie, physi- 
cally or mentally. She rushes around from morning 'till night, 
usually talking excitedly, and if there is any new gossip Bonie is 
always the first one to pick it up. She doesn't have to study much, 
because she just naturally sees through the deepest points before 
the rest of us have gotten on the track. She leads the Mu yells, 
with wild gesticulations, and those of us who have seen her will 
never forget the way she says, "Mu team! — Let's go!"' 

Vina flinr Burke 

When Nina appears, hair standing perpendicularly, feet in a 
tickletoe humor and face shined for the occasion, the entire place 
begins to liven up. As such times we're sorry for Miss Lee or 
any one in the vicinity of the over-exuberant Senior. Alas! Nina 
is not always so inclined to throw herself into such tantrums. On 
these sad occasions, verily, we almost approach dignity. 



We're very proud of Marian. Not only does she attain the 
Honor Roll and understand "N Philosophy," hut she also lends 
poise and dignity to our class when we appear in public. Appear- 
ances are deceptive, though — those are only her company manners. 
When within the sheltering walls of Senior Hall she is a leader in 
the fun and frolic of our class. In addition to all this, she is our 
class beauty, and, moreover, has been voted "Most Courteous" for 
two years. Still, we can't praise her for that. She can't help it. 
Thai's just her all over. 

Josephine Erwin 

Should the casual observer pass through St. Mary's Grove he 
would not fail to discern that Josephine is a Senior. This far her 
looks and dignity carry her. Should one be more than a casual 
observer, he would notice, also, that she is always surrounded by 
a roaring crowd. She does not need to make witty remarks; the 
mildest statement, such as, "Is this the twentieth century? How 
time does fly at this place!" said in a droll way all her own, have 
been enough to reduce her number of votes for "Most Dignified" 
from 37 her first year to 4 her Senior year. 

Margaret Stewart Fallon 

Margaret has the distinction of being the latest addition to our 
class. She comes to us fresh from Trinity — hence her college air. 
Her memory is remarkable — and she even remembers the lessons 
of two mouths back, that have escaped the minds of all the rest of 
us long ago. In spite of the frivolity of most of our class. Mar- 
garet hasn't been demoralized yet. 

Mildred Elizabeth Kirtland 

Mildred is our class president, and she knows how to put 
things through. She has the rare ability of always picking out the 
right girls for the right committee. She talks almost incessantly, 
but is always ready to listen to exciting news, and is interested 
in everything. Sometimes she may look as though her mind was 
far away, but she is right there with the goods when a question is 
put to her. Besides, she is very popular and nabbed three honors 
in statistics during her school career. 

Elizabeth Kitrhin 

Although Elizabeth is a day pupil, we are glad she doesn't let 
the attractions of Raleigh keep her away from us altogether. How 
she manages to get in all the fun in town and still lead the Honor 
Roll at school may be a mystery to some people, but it is not to 
us, because we know she is just naturally bright. She is the only 
member of our class who aspires to the wearing of a cap and 
gown on more occasions than class parties. Here's wishing her 

Ellen Booth Lay 

Bounding up the stairs, singing deep bass and meeting various 
inhabitants simultaneously, Ellen comes in from basketball or 
tennis. Now to work! None yet has discovered how she manages 
to get material for the Muse, write a debate, essay or what-not 
and never miss a thing that is going on. Thus goes life with our 
"Jolliest" and "Best All "Round." 

Carrie Louise Toler 

Providence was kind to the rollicking, carefree Class of 1919 
when it sent one sane and practical member to bear the burdens 
of Business Manager. So well has she filled her part that we 
scarcely hear the words "pay day" and "ads." Certainly no other 
Senior class was more blessed. She is the sum total of all that is 
dignified, and again saves the class, for in this respect she is our 
redeeming feature. 

Elizabeth Nash Waddell 

"Waddie" is one of the most accomplished members of our 
class. She sings, sews, yodles, throws goals, and accumulates 
crushes, all with equal ease. We could say lots more, but we hate 
to brag about our class, so to conclude we'll just say she's a jolly 
good member and we couldn't do withoul her in Senior Hall. 

Mary Collett Wilson 

No matter where you see her, Mary always looks as though she 
had just stepped out of a bandbox. We couldn't do without her 
and the candy that her suitors keep her well supplied with. We 
are sure shell be the first one in the class to marry, but the ques- 
tion is, which one will she decide in favor of? In spite of all 
this. Mary really isn't frivolous, and as far as studies go, she has 
never vet failed to know exactly what "tke book says" 

: ' .- 

A Senior Jingle 

Albertson's demure and quiet, 

Battle loves to dream; 
Omnipresent pepf illness 

Makes Bowne's life a scream. 

Burke is ever charming. 
Dependable, that's Diane ; 

Erwin as the artist 

Leads the class to fame. 

Fallon feels in silence

The class's general exc'llence, led 
By Kirtland's great enthu. 

Kitchin's long on wisdom. 

Lay on versatility; 
Toler shines in romance and 

In business ability. 

Waddell's great at basketball. 

Cute as Santa Clans; 
Wilson as a heroine 

Wins us all applause.

The Inter-Society Debate 

Tuesday, May 29, 1919, 8:00 p.m. 

Resolved, That Ireland Should Have Complete Independence. 
Affirmative: Epsilon Alpha Pi — Ellen Booth Lav, "19, and Millicent Blanton, '20 
Negative: Sigma Lambda— Lucy London Anderson, "20, and Elizabeth Bowne, "19 

Rev. Milton A. Barber of Christ Church 
Supt. Harry Howell of the Raleigh Schools 
Joseph B. Cheshire, Jr., Esq. 

The judges decided the debate two to one in favor of the negative. 

The annual Inter-Society Debates were inaugurated in 1902, and were held each year up to and 
including 1913. In those twelve years the Sigma Lambda debaters were victorious eight times and 
the Epsilon Alpha Pi debaters four times. The Alpha Rho Society was organized in 1912, and in 
1914, 1915, and 1917 there was a series of three debates, each society debating the other two. In 
1914 Alpha Rho won both debates and Epsilon Alpha Pi defeated Sigma Lambda. In 1915 Epsilon 
Alpha Pi won both debates and Sigma Lambda defeated Alpha Rho. In 1917 each society won and 
lost. In 1916 the debates gave way to the Shakespearean Contest, in which Sigma Lambda was pro- 
nounced the winner. 

Including all eighteen years, Sigma Lambda has won ten times from Epsilon Alpha Pi, and 
Epsilon Alpha Pi has won seven times from Sigma Lambda.

The Literary Society Activities 

The Literary Societies have been leading organizations at St. Mary's since their establishment. 
Named after the leading Southern poets — Edgar Allen Poe and Sidney Lanier — they hold weekly 
meetings, with special Inter-Society Meetings to celebrate the special holiday occasions — Thanks- 
giving, Lee's Birthday, Washington's Birthday, etc. For seventeen years they have held annual Inter- 
Society Debates, and for two years they cooperated with the English Department in an Inter-Society 
Contest in writing, which included poetry, story, and essay. 

Last year the Societies alternately edited the Literary Section of The Muse, furnishing the 
material for their numbers. Judges were appointed to decide which excelled in this for the year, and 
announced on Class Day their decision in favor ol Epsilon Alpha Pi. 

The Societies choose annually the Commencement Marshals, the Chief Marshal being chosen by 
each in turn. 

The Dawn of Peace 

The stars still shone in the deep sapphire 

Of the sky, like flecks of gold; 
The murmuring voices of Night's soft choir 
Were hushed, but the wind blew cold — 
Blew strong, blew free. 
From 'cross the sea, 
With news of peace and victory. 

The stars grew dim and the sky grew pale. 

Then flushed with a golden flood 
Of color, as Day drew back her veil, 
And the sun rose red as blood — 
Rose high, rose free, 
O'er land and sea — 
With news of peace and victory. 

And with the sun, in equal power. 

O'er all the wandering world. 
There floats aloft o'er dome and lower 
The Starry Flag unfurled — 
Float high, float free. 
Shall ring with peace and victory*!

These are the '19 Statistics — 

You may agree with them or not — 

But however that be, you will surely agree 
They're a highly accomplished lot. 

There's Kirtland, the "most influential," 
And Burke for '"attractiveness" famed; 

Most popular musical Nita, 

And Bonie's "most pepful," 'tis claimed. 

The "neatest" is Mary C. Wilson, 
And "quaintest" is Margaret Yorke; 

Mary Wyatt, without any question, 
Can quite the most ceaselessly talk! 

B. Bonner we all vote the prettiest. 

And Josephine has it for looks; 
"Keevie" Wilkes excels as a worker 

In more ways than merely in books. 

Little W hedbee's undoubtedly "cutest," 
With Hawkins she dances the best; 

Belle Besselieu, though she has rivals, 
At bluffing beats all of the rest. 

Original "Gin" is the "funniest," 

And Leila "most lovable," while 
(For they're a statistical fam'ly) 

Her sister Grace gets it for style. 

H. Battle excels in athletics, 

In courtesy. Marian Drane; 
When unselfishness comes into question, 

We all have to hand it to Jane. 

"Miss Toler's" great dignity's balanced 
By the lack of it shown by "Miss Boivne,'' 

And of all the fine girls in the finest of schools, 
Jolly Ellen's the Best-all-'round.

A Modernized Morality Play 
Cbichton Thorn e, 1 A 

ACT I— Scene I 

Every freshman: So this is school. My! it seems a lonesome place to be — so 
full of people and they all seem to know each other, too. I wonder where they are 
going to put me to room. O! I hope it's a front room so I can see the cars pass — 
maybe over that lovely little balcony with the flower in the window. I wish I knew. 

( Enter Fate. ) 

Fate: Are you Everyfreskman? 

Every freshman: 1 am. 

Fate: I have come to lead you to your room. Here is the number. Had you 
rather find it alone? 

Every freshman : No; lead the way, please. Fate. 


■^ a ?^" 



Scene 2 

The Average Freshman 's Room 

Fate: I leave you here. Another companion will soon come to you. 

Every freshman: My roommate? 

Fate: Yes, and still another. May happiness, too, find her sweet way up here. 

Every freshman: She'll have ahout sixty-two steps to climb if she does. (Exit 
Fate.) This certainly is a bare-looking room. I can't see much from the window, 
either. 0! that lovely little balcony I saw. (Every freshman sits mournfully on bed 
and powders nose.) 

Every freshman: A knock at the door! But I don't intend to answer it. I want 
to be just by myself until I make out what it's all about. 

(Homesickness comes in unsummoned.) 

Homesickness: So you have come, have you? I knew that you felt alone and 
miserable, therefore I have come to be your constant companion for two weeks. 
There's no telling, you know, when your trunk will come — it may be lost. Chances 
are that it is. I'm sure you won't like your room-mate, and your home is millions 
and millions of miles away. Isn't the rain terrible? You don't know a living soul 
in School, do you? Poor little girl, so far away from everybody that loves you — 
come, come, Every freshman, take me for a friend of your own free will. I'm going 
to stay with you, anyway. 

Every freshman: You make me very dissatisfied and unhappy. I was promised 
good and congenial friends before I came. Get out of my room. Who are you, 
anyway? Surely not a pretended friend. 

Homesickness: I am Homesickness and, friend or not, I am your constant com- 
panion for two weeks. You will need gloom-tonic wdien you get through with old 
Homesickness. Count on that. 

Every freshman: But my promised friends, where are they — Latin, Science, 
Math, Music, History, Gym? 

Homesickness: Gym! Ha! ha! ha! So you are in love with Gym, too, are 
you? Well, that's one friend you'll get enough of before he's done with you. 
Indeed, he is most fastidious! You can't even see him without dressing especially 
for Gym. But he is the only pair of pants that you will ever see around here. To 

Senior Class Scenes 




tell the truth, he is popular in a way. Every Senior, Junior and Sophomore and 
Everyjreshman, they all dress for Gym. (Every freshman dabs eyes with crepe de 
chine cloth.) 

Everyjreshman: But, Homesickness, the others — aren't they interesting? 

Homesickness: 0! the others. Well, are you particularly interested in: 

Angles, curves and lines; 

In sharps and flats. 
In formulas, equations, 

And in roll of sulphur vats? 

Infinitives and passives; 

In slanted rays, 
In theorems, hhS, 

And in the old English plays.'' 

Symbols, roots and squares, 

In stated rules, 
In irregular French verbs. 

And in government of schools? 

ACT II— Scene 1 

(Everyjreshman, with hair up, skirts lengthened. Silting at desk in room, 
writing letter. Reads aloud.) 

Everyjreshman: My benevolent Mater: Two weeks in the life of a young 
woman at college makes a great deal of difference in the young woman. I am very, 
tres changed. I am aussi ties popular. Two Seniors have spoken to me and six 
other people. The Seniors were very interested in me — enough, in fact, to ask my 
name and where I was from, respectively. (Interrupted by loud knock at door. Pep 
slicks head in door.) 

Pep: Jolly day to you, Everyjreshman! Beautiful weather, isn't it? Why on 
earth don't you wear buns? That's a ridic way you've got of fixing your flox. Who 
are you crushed on? 


(A pepful voice is heard dying away gradually in the distance, singing: ) 

Pep: 0! 'twas pep, pep, pep, 

That won my rep, rep, rep. 

Everyjreshman: So that is Pep, is it? and talking — talking about being crushed. 
Well, I never had the feeling before. 


Etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.

Once on a stilly night, 

Ere Study Hall hail bound me, 
I wandered in the pale moonlight, 
The shadows dark around me. 
No thoughts of fears 
Where all these years 
The ghosts of Smedes has haunted, 
Until I heard 
A sound absurd 
Like a thousand monkeys taunted!

In shadows dark ami moonless —

Gone the light of the sun's last rays, 
Gone our happy young dancing days, 
And gone we'll be if evermore 
We're seen upon the Parlor floor. 
Never can we tickle-toe. 
Never joy of waltzing know — 
All those days were gone and past 
When into Gym class we were cast, 
Placed with faces to the wall. 
On our toes to rise and fall 
Patiently six times a week. 
Detained on Monday if we speak. 
From our daily acrobatics 
You might think we're all fanatics; 
Bui when of such poor sport I'm weary. 
And I leave this life so dreary. 
Write it on my graveyard slab. 
"Here lies a martyr. A-B, Ah!"

The hours which ever longest seemed to drag 

While passing, now they're past seem to have down 
Like bubbles by the breezes gently blown, 

Which shatter at a touch and are no more. 
So have the days we've spent together here 
Slipped by unheeded through another year. 

And now the Future opens wide her door, 
Points on to new endeavors, new desires. 
With newborn hope each eager soul inspires; 

Yet, looking back, we on the threshhold lag.
